  1. Not sure if you follow his blog but he does not help himself any there either. I agree I think he is stuck in endless revisions. I completely respect that he wants the book as perfect as possible. I hope he gets there but loosing a little faith it will ever be released. Then what kills me is he says "this is only the begging of the stories in this world".
  2. Finished Wrath of Empire. Really solid second book excited for the last. Was glad to see my favorite character show up in the end wish he had more screen time though. Also finished a re-read of the Kingkiller Chronicles. This is the first time I have re-read TWMF. I loved TNoTW but was less impressed by TWMF. This time around I liked TWMF a lot more. I'll tell you this though.. Man re-reading this prompted me to check in to see if there was any news on the release of the third book. I figured there wasn't or I would have already heard but still had to. Reading fan's thoughts and Rothfuss replies makes me appreciate Brandon even more.
  3. I recently had a friend plead with me to read the Raven's Shadow books. He gave me the books and raved about how good they are. I read a little of the first one a week or so ago and it just didn't grab a hold of me. I will give them another shot though because we have very similar taste in books.
  4. Absolutely love these two books and cannot wait for the last one. I've read both 3 times now and it gets better each time. I'll admit the time travel stuff gets a little confusing I feel like I need to write out a timeline but it is a great story. About half way through Wrath of Empire and loving it so far. I re-read Sins of Empire right before which I liked even more this time around. I think this will be better than the original Powder Mage books. You can certainly see Brandon's influence in his writing.
  5. Oh wow I didn’t know the second book was out! Just bought it. I liked Sins of Empire a lot can’t wait to read this one!
  6. You beat me with this post by seconds! Can't wait to hear more about this!
  7. I’ll have to check that out I’m a HUGE fan of the Barsoom books.
  8. Thanks for the feedback everyone regarding Dark Tower! I may jump in to King in a little while. Only King books I've read are It and The Body (Stand By Me) besides The Gunslinger.
  9. Alright so I might just give The Dark Tower series a shor again I’ve been looking for something new to start. I found this expanded reading order what do you guys think?

  10. I read the first book and at the end was kind of like what the heck did I just read. That is not necessarily a bad thing I felt that even more so with Annihilation and other books but pair that with a setting I just don't really care for much and I just wasn't compelled to keep reading. I have heard really good things about the series as a whole. Maybe some day.
  11. Thats true but this was my opinion going in to the book not after I read it. Looking at the cover I thought it was steam punk then reading the prologue just as @Niteshado said it seems like a western. I read this before I ever found this site and had just finished the original trilogy which was the first books of Brandon I read. Only reason I even remotely kept reading was because of how much I loved MB Era1. By the end of the book absolutely loved it.
  12. That is a good point and she was raised in a mainly male house. I mean besides the mother she killed. What about Lyn? I kinda see her as the type of young lady that is perfectly fine hanging out with the guys though. Now that I think about it there is VERY little female friendship in SA...
  13. You are not alone! In fact I almost didn't read AoL because I have never been able to get in to the Western/Steam Punk setting. It is why I couldn't get in to Dark Tower. Now the MB Era 2 books are one of my favorites especially BoM and cant wait until the last one is out.
  14. I'd have to strongly disagree with this regarding motivations. We have a very good understanding of Adolin's motives at least in the first two books he is defending his father and family. Pretty much everything he does revolves around this motivation and it is clear right up to the point he kills Sadeas. So in Adolin's case I'd say this is completely false.
  15. Great video! Most was pretty well known especially around this site but I enjoyed seeing the childhood photos.
